OUR APPROACH


African Conservation Centre integrates knowledge, environment and livelihoods to sustain biodiversity in East Africa. As an African hub for cutting edge ecological research and community-based conservation practices, we bring together the people and resources needed for long-term solutions. Our approach is to:


CONSERVE BIODIVERSITY IN EAST AFRICA

We identify the most bio-rich areas and integrate science with indigenous knowledge to determine the best ways to protect these areas for everyone.



IMPROVE LIVELIHOODS

We partner with communities living with wildlife to ensure they have the information and tools to continue to coexist with wildlife in a changing world. We assist communities in developing trainings, workshops, funding, and information exchanges related to ecotourism, nature-based products, crafts, rangeland and wildlife management, cultural heritage and environmental education.


PROMOTE LEARNING EXCHANGES

We are collaborators and value learning from and sharing with communities, organizations, institutions and cultures. We bring together individuals, communities, funders, scientists, organizations, cultures and governmental organizations to develop conservation practices and policies that work on the ground and are modelable around the world.


DEVELOP BIODIVERSITY INFORMATICS

The African Conservation Centre is a leader in developing new ways to organize, understand, and provide access to biological data about East Africa’s rich biodiversity.
